Home needed for Mini Schnauzer Maggie, who is in Kent, - Feb 2019
Miniature Schnauzer looking for a loving home
by: Mrs Arnold (18.104.22.168)
I have just read you post about your friend looking to rehome a Schnauzer.
We have had to make the very sad decision to rehome our beautiful Maggie, aged 3 (almost 4.)
We have had Maggie since she was was 10 weeks old, pedigree papers available.
Maggie is a fab little dog, completely clean indoors since 12 weeks old, fine to be left for short periods, very clever and never had any health problems, vet records can be provided. Spayed.
Unfortunately Maggie does not enjoy being touched unless on her terms and has developed a fear of my daughter which has led to growling (out of fear rather than aggression. ) Maggie can be nervous of people she doesn't know and won't be tolerate a stranger touching her and will squeal loudly if approached by someone she doesn't know. We know this fear came from some time spent with a family who she stayed with for 1 month whilst we were in America at the age of 1 year. I can give full details.
Maggie must be homed with a family without young children and with someone who will respect her boundaries and understand she is not a lapdog unless she knows you. She needs someone willing to take the time for her to trust you and preferably someone experienced of the breed.
Loves cuddles and fuss once she gets to know you, very loving but needs someone to take the time to build up trust. Whilst she does make it known she doesn't want to be touched she is not aggressive at all.
She doesn't enjoy the vet or groomer but is groomed regularly.
Loves walks, great off lead, enjoys a play!
Slightly fussy eater but I can discuss further.
Maggie is a brilliant little dog, so many lovely qualities but I'm so sad to say she just isn't compatible with children.
Has lived with another dog, they get on Very well and enjoy chasing each other round the garden!!
This is a very sad decision and must glibly go to someone who is willing to give her time.
